Strategic Plan 2021 – For a more innovative, cleaner and inclusive Quebec economy

Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) Strategic Plan 2021 sets out CED’s key directions until 2021. Working collaboratively with all stakeholders concerned by economic development issues, CED plans to continue its mission by focusing on innovation, clean growth, economic diversity and the development of a more inclusive economy.

This Plan was developed following a consultation process: In 2016, CED launched the Dialogue on the economic development of Quebec regions, consulting with around 1,000 citizens and economic stakeholders. The ideas collected through this Dialogue informed the development of CED’s strategic directions that will guide its actions over the coming years.


Discussion about what CED will be accomplishing until 2021

Regional intervention strategies

The Plan will be implemented through the Regional intervention strategies developed by CED’s business offices in Quebec’s regions and through the Industrial and Technological Benefits Intervention Strategy, among other things. By considering the needs of its clientele and the unique socio-economic, demographic and geographic features of its region, each business office provides a strategic regional perspective in support of CED’s priorities.
